I thank U,
I would like to return the favor, but I’m not sure what is your thesis. I do see plenty of negativity....... I’m looking for some light...... some positive statement...... a clear vision.
You are right, that we can’t take the best possible world for granted. It requires our continuing coCreation...... proactive imagination.
Then we have foot........
We can all feel sorry for the poor little chicken/sunfish....... being ganged up on by catfish, tunafish and goldfish. Tunafish being bill, and goldfish being that other guy...... in the big house.
goldie and sunny both suffer from messy antics.
Someone might think that sunny is somehow getting in the way of goldie. That was the prophecy from Panama.
Yes, eventually truth gets in the way of lies, but, as goldie says, let’s have them duke it out for awhile.
And, anyway, it looks like I’m flip flopping again......
In my rush to be a good little post millennialist, I plum forgot about the Kingdom come. Both goldie and I are are trying to storm the gates of heaven, with our respective messy antics. goldie also styles himself as the prince of lies, we might note. And we, both, vie for the hand of the Princess.
How can one be a post millennialist with the Kingdom come?
And what about the new Heaven and new Earth?
The idea of a messianic age is virtually synonymous with the prophetic tradition.
This idea is the fire in our minds, and it has generally wreaked havoc upon the Earth, since the dawn of history...... Marxism and Nazism being just the latest renditions.
I’d much rather fail with the truth than succeed with a lie.
The funny thing is that both tunafish and catfish are also pre millennialists. I learned this from tunafish, yesterday. We might wonder about goldfish.
With t&c, the millennium will not come until after a horrendous die back/Tribulation.
Tuna believes that in the new world we will all be Amish Buddhists, staying down on the farm.
Christian eschatology points out to gradual character of the Messianic Age. According to realized eschatology, the Messianic Era, a time of universal peace and brotherhood on the earth, without crime, war and poverty, to some extent, is already here. With the crucifixion of Jesus the Messianic Era had begun, but according to inaugurated eschatology it will completed and brought to perfection by the parousia of Christ.
Yes, there is a bit of confusion on these points. Maybe we can shed some light here, U, if you’d like to help paint this fence.
As the plan unfolds he sees no bees, throwing his lot with the flees. With the vectors in order, he will secure the border, and the losers will be sent to Morder. Listen to the Chicken, the cat lost her Mitten, he will be hung out to dry. For the World is in Order, despite fools on the recorder, the Foot is at the Sorter.
We might need to look at this a bit more carefully..........
There are several items that I’ve noticed, here, as I continue to peruse.......
At, at least, one glaring spot there is an indefinite pronoun.
c is getting into the messy antic fray, along with g&s, now being the sorter....... here come da judge.
t&c are both dualists. We don’t know about goldfish.
Sunfish is definitely a monist...... the only dualism is as that between sun and moon...... moon being Creation, reflecting the Source.
I think U might have a tendency to want to fight city hall. I gave that up forty two years ago.
I’m in a rush, but not as much of a rush as c,t&g...... judge not, lest ye be judged.
The three little kittens, they washed their mittens,
And hung them out to dry,
"Oh, mother dear, do you not hear,
That we have washed our mittens?"
"What, washed your mittens, then you're good kittens,
But I smell a rat close by."
"Meow, meow, meow,
We smell a rat close by."
hmmm...... who would like to play the rat?
Poor buddy has been cast as the rat, and that’s why I’m under the bus, due to an interview that may have been misconstrued.
In the best possible world, being under this bus is the best possible place to be, isn’t it, buddy? It affords excellent cover, and we all end up in the same place, don’t we, once we get past the Sorter?
Where the BPW shines is with the old problem of the new Earth...... it has stumped all the king’s men and all the king’s cheetahs.
With the CTC, the new Earth is easy peasy....... it’s simply the Original Eden.
Are we going to have to go through the whole shooting match all over again?
Here, again, it’s just 123.......
There has, in all of Creation, only ever been one person..... that’s you and me, isn’t that right, U?
There can be only be one best possible circuit, because of the Identity of Indiscernibles (II). This is the one soul world....... just like Wheeler’s one electron world.
This is why I hasten to chasten catfish/pelican and tunafish about being overly judgmental....... what goes around, comes around, in this one soul world.
I like the story about the two drunk guys walking down the railroad tracks. Along comes the express....... Andy jumps out of the way, but Charlie is not so fortunate. Andy continues down the tracks...... he sees an arm, then a leg, then another arm...... eventually he comes to Charlie’s head and picks it up....... Charlie, you old fool, pull yourself together!
This is basically what we’re in the process of doing...... right, here, in the Endtimes........ pulling ourselves together...... that’s with the help of the internet and Buddy’s Big Love...... isn’t that right, Buddy?
The Big Love is kinda like the Big Crunch..... formerly of physics fame, before we had the Big Rip, or is that RIP?
The pantheists/mystics talk about getting off the wheel of samsara..... through lifetimes of enlightenment. If we have 10^10 of us, as being just one person....... that means that the one person, in effect, has to around the wheel of life 10^10 times.
Wouldn’t that get really tiresome?
Well, that one, aboriginal, person keeps trying to crash the gates, trying to get back in. She wants to get back in, much more than she wants to get out, it would seem.
Still, 10^10 times around does beggar the imagination.
If it’s not just one soul, most folks suppose there are an infinite number. Hmmm....... thanks, but no thanks.
In the BPW, the infinities lie inward, not outward. Yes, sports fans, get over it, get used to it.
This logistics is what makes up for our not having any free will....... everything we could possibly imagine doing gets done, one way or another....... even being the narcissist in chief........ hey, one day we just got too bored for our own good. Don’t worry, we’ll live to regret it.
I had forgotten why foot wanted us to get out of Syria.
It was not for the reason stated...... that he didn’t like the Kurds.
No, it’s not that he hates the Kurds, it’s because he loves ISIS and good old Al Baghdadi, with whom he has frequently communicated. And he loves their anthem........
God is the greatest! God is the greatest!
And God is greatest above plots of the aggressors,
And God is the best helper of the oppressed.
With faith and with weapons I shall defend my country
And the light of truth will shine in my hand.
Say with me! Say with me!
God, God, God is the greatest!
God is above any attacker!
with the Jihadis galloping by on horseback. Who could not be inspired?
And, yes, sports fans, don’t forget that we did have a heads up about 9/11. Thank you, Al, you made our day. After that, vegas was a bit of a letdown.
Is Al working for us, or are we working for Al? Let’s not get too technical about the BPW..... it’s all about codependent arising....... Pratītyasamutpāda...... remember...... it’s in that mnemonic that everyone loves to hate..... including me. catfish parachuted into nam, according to an ex girl friend. tuna checked it out, bless his heart..... with friends like tuna......
So, yes, the only disagreement between c,t&s, now, is the extent of the ‘Tribulation’........ will it be 1% or 99%? No, we even agree on that, with a final population of ~144 million. It just depends on when and how, and whether natural or not, although it might be a bit tricky to define natural, in an eschatological context. Yes?
